Rhodes Historical Review
Since 1999, the Rhodes chapter of Phi Alpha Theta has published annually the Rhodes Historical Review. This award-winning, student-edited journal accepts essays from across the College that investigate historical subjects and themes from all time periods and geographic regions. Student submissions must be accompanied by a faculty member’s nomination to be considered by the editorial board.
The two co-editors of the journal are elected from among the general membership at the same time as the chapter’s officers. The editors invite two other members to join an editorial board which reads and selects the essays to be published.
In 2012, the American Historical Association awarded Daniel Williford ’11 its top prize for undergraduate research in history, the Raymond J. Cunningham Prize. Williford’s essay, “Colonial Narratives: Visions of Pre-Islamic Algeria in the Revue Africaine, 1870-1896,” was written for one of Prof. Etty Terem’s research seminars.
